We often underestimate our children.
They’re capable of understanding really big, powerful ideas… so long as the ideas are explained properly.
Part of my inspiration for Love Wings came from an Eckhart Tolle teaching. Here’s the direct quote that captures the idea:
“Love is a state of Being. Your love is not outside; it is deep within you. You can never lose it, and it cannot leave you.”
With permission from Eckhart Tolle, Love Wings, takes this idea and make it digestible for children.
The main anxiety children have on their first day of school, or their first trip away from parents, is uncertainty. They have to leave the safe and familiar behind for the unknown.
If a child thinks that love is limited only to when they can literally see you – then of course it makes sense that they’d be scared.
But what if they knew that your love never left them?
That no matter where they were or who they were with, your love was just as strong, just as constant, and just as real?
That’s what Tolle teaches. We don’t have to be dependent on external circumstances or events for that love – love really is our birthright, and we can never be separated from if we know where to look for it.
And that’s what I teach in Love Wings.
In the book, Annie thinks it is the wings that have the power, but when she loses them, she discovers that really the love comes from her own heart.
